Luck is a relative term. We have superstitions relating to both good and bad luck,
but we can also choose to accept what comes our way with a positive outlook.
Shamrocks and leprechauns aside, this month we are featuring businesses
and events that warrant exploration--and they may just make you feel like
you've found a little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
As spring arrives later this month, we look forward to getting outside of the
house. As you take stock of your outdoor living spaces, a trip to Byler Buildings
in Catlett may be in order. Since 1977, it has been renowned for its outstanding
storage sheds and, later, lawn furniture and other items, including playhouses,
swing sets, gazebos, animal shelters, and more.
Steve points out that sheds can serve in a variety of capacities. Not only are
they great for storage, but they make great studios, pet kennels, even "she
sheds" and "man caves!" As always, most pieces are made by Amish and
Mennonite artisans, and you'll be delighted with the high quality and excellent
prices. Steve is also happy to customize sheds to meet specifi c needs.
Step inside the shop to fi nd an array of indoor furniture--much of it Amish-
made as well, including hutches, cabinets, tables, and chairs, in addition to
other home décor and even homemade edibles. As with any of their products,
if you don't see what you want, just ask! To learn more, call (540) 788-4919.
Big-box hardware stores are prevalent everywhere, but we're blessed to have
had an old-fashioned hardware store--with modern-day supplies--in our midst
for more than 50 years. Rankin's Hardware opened early in 1966 and has
been in its current Warrenton Village shopping center location since 1979.
You'll still fi nd the expertise and service you seek, thanks to Glenn Rankin and
his dedicated staff. With spring approaching this month, grilling (and gardening)
season is just around the corner. In addition to a variety of grills (including the
Big Green Egg--a big hit for its versatility), you'll fi nd a host of supplies to get
going on sprucing up your outdoor areas.
Seeds of all kinds, lawncare items, gadgets to make garden work easier, beautiful
outdoor furniture and yard ornaments, and more! When the weather warms
up, head back to the shop for fl owering plants, vegetables, and shrubs. Don't
forget that this full-service shop also boasts a terrifi c selection of traditional
hardware stores--nuts and bolts, tools, and the list goes on. To learn more,
call (540) 347-2499.
